The Red Sox, PawSox, Celtics and Revolution are all providing engaging content to keep youth moving!

Since the start of the stay-at-home quarantine we have all been living through for the past two months, we are adjusting to a new way of living in these uncertain times. Life has been upended and normal activities have come to a screeching halt. Something as simple as watching live sports either in person or on TV has been paused at both the local as well as professional level.

In New England, our beloved sports teams have embraced their digital communications even more and have created everything from a whole section of content dedicated to fun and educational activities as well as videos showing exercises you can do at home! Our favorites have been the Red Sox puzzles, STEM worksheets, learning how to play half-ball, what a baseball is made of and Rick's Points to Ponder from the PawSox, and workout videos from the Revs!

For a limited time only, you can also have your personalized message displayed on the main John Hancock centerfield video board at Fenway for a donation to the Red Sox Foundation.

Here are a lists of fun things you can find broken down by sports team:

I got to play Bubble Soccer at the New England Revolution soccer game!

Last night I went back to Gillette to go the New England Revolution soccer game with my buddy, Yuval. As we were walking into the stadium, we walked by the fan zone and heard over the loud speaker "If you want to play Bubble Soccer, come to the stage" and we quickly signed up. Well, just before halftime we met the two other guys we were going to play against and put on the inflatable bubbles and then ran out onto the field. 

They promptly announced us on the loud speaker and then we started... We continued to "play" soccer for 3 minutes and I just tried not to fall down and end up flipped over. I was pretty lucky - not only did I not fall over, but I even scored a goal and with Yuval's goal, we ended up winning!

Here's the video to watch the game (it's pretty funny):

NOTE: I was not provided any compensation for this post. I was just selected as a participant for bubble soccer then decided to make a video about it since it was too funny! All opinions are my own
